Congressional Socialist Looks to Silence Catholics

Socialists in congress are looking to bring the hammer down on Catholics who dared advocate their values in the public square.

From CNS News:

The Catholic League was responding to a Democratic lawmaker, who questioned whether the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) violated federal law by lobbying for an amendment banning federal funding of abortion.

Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), in a November 9 op-ed on the Politico Web site, said that in light of heavy pressure from USCCB against federal funding for abortion, the Internal Revenue Service should investigate whether the organization exceeded the limitations of its tax-exempt status – a move that could lead the Internal Revenue Service to revoke that status.

Woolsey’s comments came after USCCB lobbied pro-life Democrats to support the efforts of Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), who sponsored an amendment prohibiting federal funding of abortion through any of the health insurance subsidies created by the House health care bill.

Chicago politics on the Potomac, anyone?

The message from these despotic socialists is clear and unmistakable: get in our way and we’ll hurt you.

On a similar note, the Alliance Defense Fund is offering free legal assistance to churches that are harassed by a homosexual activist group, “Maine Marriage Equality.” This group is trying to bring the tax hammer down on churches in Maine for daring to stand publicly for marriage.  MME is encouraging complaints be made to the IRS about churches for exercising their religious freedom and free speech rights.  The Apostles of Tolerance are so “tolerant,” aren’t they?

As I’ve said before, a government or government official who’s willing to ignore the Constitution in one area (i.e. the fact that government health care isn’t allowed by the Constitution) will undoubtedly ignore it in other areas as well–including your fundamental freedoms.
